Day 4 with no transfers, and I’m beginning to hallucinate. I even had a dream that John O’Shea was returning to Manchester United. Please, please, let today end the drought…


Finally, some action! Robbie Brady has made his loan deal to Hull City permanent. The 20-year-old winger signed a three-and-a-half year deal.

The Rumour Mill

Despite our very own Joseph Demspey saying yesterday that it’ll never happen, the Times (warning: paywall) suggests that Chelsea plan on replacing Frank Lampard with Marouane Fellani. Chelsea’s all-time second-top scorer will be offered a place at Manchester United, according to the Telegraph.

The Metro reports that Lampard could also be replaced by Luka Modric, after the former Tottenham star said “It’s very demanding to adjust to a huge club like Real Madrid”. Modric was recently given the “worst signing of the season” award by Spanish newspaper Marca.

Chelsea target Taison could be taken from under their noses, according to the Daily Mirror, with Manchester City, Benfica, and Shakhtar Donetsk all ready to agree a deal of their own.

Manchester United expect to win the race for the signature of Wilfried Zaha, according to the Mail. Crystal Palace value the player at £20m, but it’s more likely that the bidding will begin at £7m with players and other add-ons thrown into the deal.

Having lost out on Zaha, Arsenal are after Argentinian Lucas Biglia, says the Independent. The £8m rated holding midfielder is currently at Anderlecht.

After yesterday’s news that Fergie has ran out of patience with David de Gea, the Daily Mail reports that Manchester United are after Fernando Muslera, a Uruguayan ‘keeper currently playing for Galatasary.

Nuri Sahin will have his Liverpool loan ended early, according to the Daily Mail. Borussia Dortmund have offered to take him in.

Two papers report that Loic Remy won’t be going to QPR. The Mirror reports that he will choose Newcastle instead, while the Mail suggests that he might not come to England after all.
